Did your parents ever ask you if your were raised in a barn?
I'm not sure why.
I'd never even BEEN in a barn!
Before this little dresser was moved to my garage 2 years ago, it had spent the previous forty or fifty years in a barn.
So in essence this dresser was raised in a barn.
She was quite dirty and a little cranky, too.
She needed a good bath.
Well not just a bath.
A really good scrubbing. With sand paper.
Then she got 2 nice coats of Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Flow Blue.
Then she was really bright and shiny.
Loud, you might say.
Too loud for a petite little thing like this dresser.
So I gave her a couple of coats of Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint White Wax.
Now she's a bathing beauty.
I hope she gets to live the rest of her life on the beach.
After being cooped up inside for the last forty years . . .
She deserves it.
Bless her heart.
And by the way. Those knobs are from Hobby Lobby. The starfish were bronzy. I painted them white.
Have you ever met a dresser that lived in a barn for 40 years?
How did you teach her manners?
